      Hi there

      i've sent quite a few clients to Barley Wood for a 6 monther. I've never had any bad feedback about it.


      It all depends who's in there @ the mo, eg, staff & clients. But more importantly, it's your own determination, motivation and self-will power. As the easey part is Detoxing, but the hardest part, is staying clean/dry, and not relapsing.


      Did you do a Medical Detox? Brook Drive? Long Yard? City Rd's?

          Hi, thanks for replying and yep i totally agree with what you're saying that it depends on the crowd in there at the time - i'm going to get off drugs and medication though, not to find a new social scene, i haven't lost sight of that! I just wondered what it was like as a place with regards to what the regime is like. I am actually going to be detoxed at Barley Wood, i'm currently on 70ml of methadone a day, the biggest mistake i ever made going on that stuff, but that's another story! Not sure what you mean by Brook Drive Long Yard City Rd's though, i'm not from Bristol/Somerset area, i'm on the isle of wight... Can't wait to gett here though i am so looking forward to getting all this crap behind me at long last

                Not at all, many people here are extremely well educated about drugs and know the ins and outs of drug use and abuse... people here give out good advice.

                  go for it mate!
                  NEVER HEARD OF THE PLACE ..you ...can make the place work maybe.
                  some of 'em are crap till the right client turns up ...seriously.
                  how determined are you?
                  are you being sent there against your will?
                  if so ...you won't be that person.
                  excuse the off cuff comments in here ...your new ...this lot are basicly dead sound ...even bong!
                  your in with a good bunch of USERS REMEMBER ....mostly.
                  so any notion of needing to go to rehab is totaly alien to them.
                  i've been in rehab for addiction.
                  it worked for me ...not the way they would like but ...i did it for me ...not them.
                  do it ...do it ...and do it some more ...see if you can be ...a voice of calm and reason ...whenever your confronted wth sonmething you disagree with ...if you feel you have been proved wrong ...hold your hands up.
                  if you have any pprinciples then show them.
                  i yththoroughly enjoyed my time there ...very emotional ...
                  you obviously need it ...you can handle it ...you will thrive yes!

                    no i didn't cos i got the response from john the hippie that i was looking for, which was that he hadn't heard any negative feedback, that's good enough for me
                    Don't get me wrong here i am gonna miss my drugs like nothing else - BIG time, but there has come a point in my life where i know i have to say goodbye - sad but true, keep enjoying yours though while you can, i have no intentions of becoming an up my own arse preacher when i get out, this is just something that i have to do for me

                      I haven't heard of that particular rehab, but I teach in a rehab in south west London so I know a little about it. If you feel ready for it, go for it. It will be tough going but also very rewarding. Be prepared to put the work in.
                      Good luck.

                        cheers morrocan & Nash - I figured this was as good a place as any to get some sound advice too and i'm going to rehab for me, no other reason, i'm 36, i've had a damn good innings over the years and it's time to move on to pastures new, no one can keep going forever, so while i've still got some sanity intact it's a good time to do it and i'm looking forward to it - but yeah i won't take any shit, i will have my say and voice my opinions and make sure i get out of it what i want to get out of it - if that makes any sense! And if i get bored in straightsville, well i can still stick my head round the door again from time to time if i want can't i, perhaps i never will, but it's knowing that i could if i wanted to that will get me through - it's called delay tactics and some people can delay their using for 20 years or more - whatever works innit!
